Every dog has its day

A man took his dog to a talent agency and told the agent that the dog could talk. The agent looked skeptical.

“No, really,” said the man. “Watch this. What’s on the top of a house?” 

“Roof!” said the dog. 

The agent remained unimpressed. 

“Okay, watch this,” said the man. “How does sandpaper feel?” 

“Rough!” said the dog. 

The agent was quickly losing patience. 

“No, hang on,” said the man. “This one will knock your socks off. Who was the greatest baseball player of all time?” 

“Ruth!” said the dog. 

The agent, having seen enough, booted them both out of his office onto the street. 

The man and his dog sat on the curb dejectedly. The dog turned to his owner and said, “You think maybe I should’ve said DiMaggio?”

  1. I actually met a woman whose dog really, truly, could talk. Her little dog, I think he was a terrier, could say “I love you,” “I want to go home” and “I’m hungry”, among other things. He didn’t just mimic her, either, he answered her questions.

    I know, it sounds unbelievable. The woman and her dog lived near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, about 20 years ago, when I knew them. I met her because she had a little shop that sold crafts and antiques, and I often stopped in. Her dog was always there at her side. One day, she demonstrated to me how her dog could talk. There was no way that it was a trick, he had to work his throat so hard to get every word out. He was definitely talking!

    The reason they weren’t famous was because she was a very private person and she loved her dog like a child. She was afraid someone might steal her dog if the truth about him got out. I had to promise not to tell anyone, and I never did. But now, all these years later, I am sure that amazing dog is no longer around.

    Still… I wish I’d had a smartphone with a video recorder back then!
